Borgeous – Nobody
Each week, New Music Friday sweeps through with torrential force, showering streaming platforms with immeasurable amounts of new tunes. Just like Dancing Astronaut rounds up 25 of the biggest songs of the week for the Hot 25 Spotify playlist each New Music Friday, Lunar Lunes serves as a landing pad for SoundCloud users who want a whole new dose of tunes to kick off the work week.
Out via Proximity on is Borgeous’ latest single ‘Alcohol.’ Based out of LA, the highly successful DJ and producer is about to add to his platinum sales with this dynamic listen. You might find the track’s mantra bittersweet. Borgeous’ songwriting abilities are put on display here by placing dark and vulnerable lyrics on top of an
Few moments are more sacred than the reprieve Saturday night provides from the daily grind of school and work. Its importance is meant to be emphasized, and thus, a feature dedicated to “doing the night right” was born. Saturday Night Sessions are set around energizing mixes meant to get the party started. New or old, each episode has one cornerstone thing in similarity: they serve as the perfect backdrop for the weekend pregame.
DJ and producer Borgeous is long-known for his ability to fluctuate between the trap and dubstep genres while also maintaining a balancing act with catchy commercial releases. His commercial leaning tracks feature flowing melodies without the hard-hitting edge his other works contain. While many producers who have perfected the art of a heavy drop retain hints of intensity in their commercial leaning releases, Borgeous has the ability to display two very distinct creative sides that do not crossover, giving him a dynamic sound and therefore fanbase.
The Las Vegas based producer, whose real name is John Borger, just released a four track EP focusing in on his bass-driven side called Lights Out, and consistent with his previous releases, he has gone straight for an unrelenting compilation of live-performance worthy tracks. He speaks on the EP, giving fans insight into his inspiration for the music and where they can expect it to come to life, stating, “Lights Out is an EP directly connected to my current live shows. I wanted to release music that fit the harder, more bass-heavy sets that I have been playing out at clubs and festivals recently.”
Borger also notes that a crowd’s reaction to his music is one of his biggest inspirations, and that as of late, he has been really inspired by heavier sets at his live shows. The producer is nearing his fifth year with a heavy tour schedule, which is often rumored to be the amount of time it takes for an artist to ‘burn out’ of life on the road. He speaks about what keeps him going, and why burn out won’t be a problem for him.
Borger says, “The energy that electronic music brings to clubs and festivals is unmatched. I wanted to be a part of that movement…Dance music has always been a part of me and has been something that I’ve always been extremely passionate about. I don’t see that changing for me, so burning out is something that has never even crossed my mind.”
When asked what kind of a Saturday Night his Saturday Night Session will get fans ready for, Borger comments, “It gets them ready for a hard-hitting set that they can expect to hear at the next Borgeous show they go to.”

You’re just hit your five year mark of heavy touring after your breakout single ‘Tsunami.’ Many say that most major artists have 5 years until they need to scale back or burn out. What are your thoughts on that theory? Dance music has always been a part of me and has been something that I’ve always been extremely passionate about. I don’t see that changing for me, so burning out is something that has never even crossed my mind.
What parts of life do you draw the most inspiration from when it comes to producing music? I get my inspiration from everything going on around me. But most importantly, I draw inspiration from a crowd’s reaction and response to different sounds and situations.

Ditching the traditional approach to releasing, Borgeous has decided to push forward a project showcasing the harsher bits and sounds that echo from his live sets of today. The recent musical tear from Borgeous is designed to cater to the tougher styles of bass music. Of course when we say that we are talking about his
Borgeous has long been known for his ability to craft radio-friendly releases juxtaposed with dance floor-ready dubstep tunes. The multi-faceted producer likes to keep fans guessing what he may produce next, but his forthcoming Lights Out EP looks to be a compilation featuring some of the producer’s hardest-hitting dubstep tracks that fans will likely recognize from his live sets.
Borgeous has released the first track from the EP, and the song will leave the listener craving more. “Runnin’” manages to blend a catchy vocal with an intense series of drops that are ready for the main stage.
“To me, ‘Runnin” is the perfect combination of the past and the present,” the producer said of the tune in a press release. “It combines both vocals and high-energy builds that can be seen in my past productions, with the heavier dubstep sounds that I love playing out live in my sets today.”
Borgeous has been teasing his Lights Out EP on his social media platforms, and fans can expect for the producer to drop singles from the compilation ahead of the EP’s full release.

Borgeous and RUNAGROUND’s 2017 single, “Coffee Can Money” offered a temperate glimpse of the sound that resulted when both artists merged their creative sensibilities. Two-years later, Borgeous and RUNAGROUND return to the electronic release ring together, to re-envision break-up on “Better Anyway.” Whereas the concept of a romantic split often sonically translates to poignant productions characterized by their low tones, languid beats, and wistful lyrics, “Better Anyway” breaks this musical mold, to perceive break-up in an optimistic manner.
“‘Better Anyway’ is about heartbreak and being able to see how unhealthy a relationship was after it’s over. It’s a break-up anthem for when you realize that going through all the bad stuff made you come out of the situation a better person at the end of the day.”
Lyrically, “Better Anyway” attributes a valiance not only to accepting what is, but to moving forward with a spirited sense of self-possession. The sanguine pledge to push on that’s audible in the single’s lyrical content is complemented by the upbeat arrangement of “Better Anyway.” The single’s chord progressions climb in tandem with the vocals, while crisp beats ground the production at the break downs. “Better Anyway’s” memorable, pop-leaning lyrical hook and general crossover appeal are a collective invitation to listeners: head in the direction of the replay button.
A collection of retrospective reminiscences, the official music video for “Better Anyway” flits from one memory shared between the visual’s two lovers, to the next. The visual record of previously existent intimacy lends depth to the lyrical narrative that “Better Anyway” tells. “I loved bringing this song to life with my good friend RUNAGROUND,” Borgeous told Dancing Astronaut. “As soon as I heard the song I had a vision for the music video, and am really happy with how it came out.”
As “Better Anyway” exemplifies, the collaborative power inherent in a Borgeous and RUNAGROUND production only amplifies with each successive joint release. “Better Anyway” is out now viaArmada Music.
